Warren Buffett Sells This First Class Stock And Buys Another Profit Machine

Warren Buffett is one of the most successful investors due to is massive investment success. His strategy is classified as value growth, a combination of value and growth.

Recently, I watched his latest portfolio activities via 13F fillings. As a result, we know that he bought one new stock and increased two additional stakes.

On the sell side, he sold out two companies and reduced three stocks. The biggest of them by investment amount were Philips 66, followed by Viacom.

Do you believe that Buffett is right with the stake reduction of Viacom? I don't think so. For sure, Charter is a better growth pick but if Viacom changes it's strategy from a buyback value pick to a growth stock, there could be a huge potential for investors.

However, these are the latest stock purchases by Warren Buffett. Attached is also a list of stocks with all activities of the recent quarter. Please leave a comment if you have something to discuss. Thank you.

Here are the results of the latest buys and sells....
